    Hello,

    The prices in my webshop include tax. On the tax configuration page I see the option 'my prices include tax', and I'd like to use this option together with option 8 (Tax is added for all orders within your country - European Economic Area).

    Let's say an item in my webshop costs 100 euros and the tax rate is 19%.
    When I add the item to my cart, shouldn't it be like this:

    84.03 euros - item without tax
    15.97 euros - tax
    100.00 euros - total

    But instead the item is just added as 100.00 to the cart. Can I change this?

    Thanks,
    Marco

    Marco,

    In addition to "my prices include tax" and option 8, make sure you have the following settings:
    - Tax Basis - Tax will be calculated using one of the rates specified below.
    - Default Tax Rate: Tax is 19

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, I checked both settings but still no luck.

    Marco,

    One more thing. I don't think the tax will be calculated until after they enter their shipping address. So, it won't show in the cart, but should show up after they enter their shipping address (e.g., on their email receipt).

    Change your cart tax setting to "sales tax should be added to my prices" and update prices in all your buy now forms or links (divide current prices by 1.19).

    Hi Anon,

    That won't be a option for me as we have over 10,000 prices in our webshop... ;) But thanks for your reply!

    Back to your original question. If you've got the settings correct the cart should calculate the tax after the customer enters their shipping address. If it is not doing that, you should contact Mal.
